Thank you for your interest in urging Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to help save the world’s elephants by banning Thailand's ivory trade, however, this Action Alert is now closed.

On March 3, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra pledged to start a legislative process to end ivory trade in Thailand, seizing a key opportunity to stem global wildlife trafficking at the opening of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Bangkok.

Her statement came after a petition calling on Thailand to ban its ivory trade was signed by nearly 1.5 million WWF, Leonardo DiCaprio and Avaaz supporters. Prime Minister Shinawatra said that Thailand would take steps to end ivory trade the first time the Thai government has said this publicly.
